Kevin James to Star in NASCAR-Backed Comedy 'The Crew' for Netflix

Netflix has today given a series order to the original comedy series The Crew starring Kevin James (The King of Queens, Kevin Can Wait). The multi-camera comedy is being produced in partnership with NASCAR.

Set in a NASCAR garage, James will play the crew chief. When the owner steps down and passes the team off to his daughter, James finds himself at odds with the tech reliant millennials she starts bringing in to modernize the team.

Jeff Lowell (The Ranch) created the comedy and will serve as showrunner. He will executive produce with James, Jeff Sussman, Todd Garner, Matt Summers and Tim Clark.
